    Hello! We are visiting October 2013. We have a breakfast reservation for 9:35am at Crystal Palace (technically AFTER the park opening time). Will we be allowed early entry into Magic Kingdom to give us extra time to walk to restaurant/check in? Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer! The breakfast buffet at Crystal Palace is so yummy -- you're going to love it! Crystal Palace is a very short walk away from the park entrance. Since you could walk to the restaurant within 5 to 10 minutes of entering the Magic Kingdom, there's no need for you to enter the park before the official 9 a.m. opening time. The opening ceremony at the Magic Kingdom is one of my favorite things at Walt Disney World -- definitely arrive at the park a little before opening to watch it and then you'll have plenty of time to leisurely stroll to Crystal Palace for your breakfast reservation. If you really want to get into the Magic Kingdom before it opens, try moving your Crystal Palace reservation to a time between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m., which will allow you to enter the park early and finish breakfast just as the park's attractions start opening to guests.

    Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
